High End Retouching & Creative Editing
Learn the art of non-destructive retouching. There are numerous plug-ins and tools out there you can purchase that promise all kinds of things but I have yet to see one that delivers natural looking skin. Results are usually way overdone and skin looks more like plastic than flesh.
How much retouching a photographer does is completely up to them. My own personal workflow involves minimal retouching - but when I do choose to remove things like pimples or other non-permanent blemishes, I use the method I learnt myself from one of the finest retouchers around. This method, or adaptations of it, is core to the workflows of major retouching houses around the world. It uses Photoshop and a complex layering arrangement. You will need a pen and tablet - just contact/message me for advice on which one to get.
Let me take you through my workflow of retouching, which leaves skin texture in tact and will not result in android skin!
DURATION: 3 hours
LOCATION: This workshop can be run at my own place in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, or I can come to you. My travel to Sydney would add $35 to the cost quoted above.
